    Anybody know a good software firewall for Linux?

    I've been skimming the net but can't find a decent one.
    Most of them are outdated and no longer in development.

    I don't use a router for my wireless connection.
    Besides, I believe software firewalls have greater control and more configurable than hardware ones.

    Any recommendation is much appreciated :D

    which linux you use for every linux it self have a iptable ipfw and ipfilter...etc so if you use all you need is a gui mode for that firewall if you use ubuntu it have ufw(Uncomplicated Firewall ) to set iptables you can also use GUI for Uncomplicated Firewall (GUFW)
